I like these acoustic sets. This one isn't as good as those of the fall of 1980, and the recording isn't all that great, but this was still a delight to find here. One interesting aspect is that instead of Phil on electric bass, we have John Kahn on acoustic bass.
My favs here are Deep Elem, Cassidy (always nice acoustic), a pretty To Lay Me Down, and the jamming Bird Song.

I'm normally not fond of audience recordings from the Warfield - a little too echoey for my taste - but this one really hits the "sweet spot". Kudos to the taper, and to the band for putting aside apoliticism for this one night (or not - nothing political about survival). Good show all around.

A little bass heavy, but otherwise everything is very audible. I love a show with all the space between songs there. A good audience recording.
